#4 of 8 Redesign coming in 2010 model year
Feb 14, 2008 (2:05 pm)
The 2009 Galants are already hitting the ground and, as nice as they are, they are not a major redesign as was promised. Rumor has it that the 2010 Galants will be the same car as the Japanese Diamonte, adapted to the US market.

Is there a Japanese built Diamonte? Or Diamante?
I thought that the Diamante was only built in Australia and production was canceled there in 2004 to build the 380 ( Galant ).
I assumed that the 2010 Galant was going to be the Concept ZT - or something close to it - on a stretched GS platform. That was also the rumor with the Concept RA.
Also, both of these concepts were shown with diesel engines I believe.
I don't get why Mitsubishi would build a Galant in Japan for export to North America and pay tariffs and transport costs. This would only hurt their North American dealers who need competitive pricing against the Camry, Accord, Malibu etc..
Besides that, I'm pretty sure that the car we know as the Lancer is sold in Japan as the Galant-Fortis, but if anyone has pics (or more info) on a new Japanese built LH drive Galant/Diamante I would like to see them.
#6 of 8 Differnts 2008 Ralliary and the 2009 Ralliary.

Do not base your Disestion on buying any Mitsubishi car on my reserach. I will not be held liable or responsble for anything.
Every Five years Mitsubishi Galant Comes out with a differnt desgined and model. Exapmle you have the ES, Sport Edition, Sport V6, and the best one I think is the Ralliart. The Mitisubishi Ralliary is the one i been doing my homework on. From what i can see the 2009 Ralliary comes with more or less the same accessories and Features the 2008 Ralliary comes with. The only Differnts from 2009 Ralliary, 2008 Ralliray is the barke lights and the grill area looks differnt.
Its a nice car but I think I will wait for the 2010 Ralliary to come out i hope its better than the 2009 Ralliary also i really hope they put fold in mirrors.
If I had the money I will 2010 Ralliary and the Mitsubishi Concept ZT.
#7 of 8 What to do?
Aug 30, 2008 (5:00 pm)
I own a 2008 Lancer. Not a great car however not bad. Mine was unfortunately delivered without rear disc's as I own the ES. Mitz claims specs subject to change without notice. I claim except when you are using it to delineate between models. Anyway, I have been given the opportunity to switch to a Galant Sport model. I will be giving up a slightly lower lease price, leather interior, touch entry, a decent radio with satalite, blutooth connectivity, a special maintainence contract. Extra power outlet in passenger compartment.
What I get is a larger car more capable transmission, rear disc's larger trunk, more room overall,a 2009 vehicle pullouts on visors a necessity in my climate.
Any takers on an opinion, thanks.

I know several people who own the upper-end sport model Galant.
They all say it's... phenomenal.
